COUNTDOWN TO KINDERGARTEN

Ensuring children are ready to learn when they enroll in kindergarten is key to preventing adverse outcomes – poverty, poor health, crime – throughout their lifetimes. Furthermore, an analysis of pre-K programs across the country showed students attending quality pre-K programs were 33% less likely to repeat a grade through 8th grade compared to students not enrolled in Pre-K.

READY TO READ

Reading proficiently by the end of third-grade is critical. According to the Children’s Reading Foundation, up to half of printed fourth-grade curriculum is incomprehensible to students who read below grade level. Additionally, about 31% of poor African American students and 33% of poor Hispanic students who did not hit the third grade proficiency mark, failed to graduate high school.

GRADUATE 918

Almost one-in-five young Tulsans enter adulthood without a high school diploma and only 53% of area graduates complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is the passport to college, and there is a 30% increase in postsecondary enrollment with low and middle-income students if the FAFSA is completed.
